Option for probkup to remove target file before backing up

On Windows, if the target backup file already exists, the backup can take a lot longer to complete. This is known, so we have to script for this by deleting the target file before backing up. 

It would be nice to remove this step with an optional parameter for probkup to remove the target file if it already exists.

  • We had to script for this too in Solaris as it was occasionally doing the same (wasn't consistent so easier to assume the target was to be removed prior to the backup).
